More about John Gordon

Private John Gordon appears to have enlisted with Dundee raised medical unit, the 3rd Highland Field Ambulance unit, however it seems that he may have been transferred or posted to No 1 Company RAMC. He is interred at Aldershot Military Cemetery.

Died in Aldershot on 06/08/1917 and recorded as serving with No 1 Coy RAMC,  ( RAMC Other Rank components for Connaught and Cambridge Military Hospitals in Aldershot).    His service number however is one of a batch which was allotted to the Dundee raised 3rd Highland Field Ambulance RAMC.  The medial examination conducted by Capt John Strathearn of 3rd Highland Field Ambulance, R.A.M.C records Pte Gordon was fit for home service only hence his posting to No 1 company.   He is recorded as having died of Acute Pthysis,  (TB),  in the Connaught Hospital in Aldershot and he is interred in the Aldershot Military Cemetery. The address listed is presumably that from which he was enlisted however his NOK listing is as follows,
Husband of Mrs. J. Gordon, of 40, Wilkie’s Lane, Dundee.
